This recipe is listed on The Chicken Chick
1/2 cup Illipe Butter
1/2 cup Beeswax
1 cup Calendula Infused Oil
Lemon Essential Oil - 4-5 drops
Orange Essential Oil - 8-10 drops
1 tablespoon honey
Liquid from 3 Vitamin E capsules
First, let me start by saying the the ingredients are completely interchangeable. If you don't have illipe butter, you can substitute jojoba or cocoa butter. You don't have to use calendula infused oil. You can use almond oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil or olive oil. I used calendula infused oil because of its soothing properties.
To begin, melt the beeswax and butter in a double boiler.
When that is melted add the infused oil, liquid from the vitamin E capsules, honey and essential oils. Stir all of that together and pour into your containers. I got these at http://mountainroseherbs.com/.
It's that easy! If you like your lip balm a little softer, decrease the amount of beeswax. Have fun experimenting with it!
